Here’s a tip for you youngsters: When you get older, you’re going to start getting a complex and will reminisce a lot more about the good ol’ days. Don’t fear it. Just embrace it. And since I’m 40 now, I do a lot of that reminiscing. So I’m sitting here on a lazy Sunday and just remembered that I used to have a pen when I was little that had fake blood in it that apparently was supposed to be a vampire bat. And those pens were called Blood Suckers! Here’s a terrible quality commercial from Youtube:
I’m pretty sure I terrorized kids at school with these and might have even gotten yelled at by a teacher or two. And it didn’t help that they were Rated PG: Pretty Gross! Haha – that cracks me up. But anyway, I’m now on a search for one of these because I love to collect things from my childhood and try and forget that I’m officially over the hill. It’s those little things that can make a difference. So if anyone gets a tip on where to grab one of these Blood Suckers for a decent price (I scour eBay on the regular), then hit me up. Until then, I’ll keep reminiscing and think back to a simpler time when I was a 7-year-old boy frightening little kids at school with my pretty gross vampire bat pen.
